January 1 is the feast of the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God, also known as the Feast of the Circumcision. It is a Holy Day of Obligation, a day in which the faithful are obliged to participate in the Mass. They have also to abstain from unnecessary works, “which hinder the worship to be rendered to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s day, or the suitable relaxation of mind and body.” (Canon 1247 of the Code of Canon Law).
